More Kinneret pollution.
Health Ministry inspectors also discovered contaminated water off Kinneret beaches on Tuesday and on Sunday.
Following the discovery Tuesday, the Health Ministry warned the public against bathing in the waters, after which the Interior Ministry announced it would close the beaches.
On Sunday, the Health Ministry also closed two Lake Kinneret beaches for swimming, after the Tiberias municipality pumped sewage into the area.
A malfunction at the city’s pumping station caused sewage to flow into the lake for what the ministry says was roughly one hour, polluting the two beaches.
This was the second time in recent months that the city’s sewage has flowed into the lake and polluted nearby beaches.
